Mexicali would actually have been a good tune if they'd stretched it out like they did Big River in the late 70s, with more room for jamming. Jerry's solos on the two Mexicali Blues in the Winterland 73 set are dynamite, and he keeps up a Big-River-like picking undercurrent going all through the Mosque May 77 version. And this is from someone who has openly maligned the song.
